just got a tramp at my backyard, and well, it`s big fun.
but trainning spins is quite hard because you`re not able to do something like a setup-turn as you do on any real kickers.

but it`s a great overall-training and you can practice any kind of grabs.

i strap in my normal snowboard. it has detuned edges and i tape them with a lot of ducktape, so they can`t do any kind of damage to the tramp.

Default just a heads up

Sorry to be a debbie downer but a good friend of mine had one installed this summer, fell off it onto his ass and got paralyzed from the chest down the first day.

Careful, those trampolines look like no big deal but may be more dangerous than the hill, especially in an uncontrolled environment without foam pits (like your backyard).

Doesn't that do damage to your board though?

what do you mean? i can't see how tape would be worse than a sticker? or, for that matter, worse than strapping yourself into it and riding on it down hills in freezing temps?

Not that I've seen.

In my second season I rented a trampoline from the ski/snowboard shop I worked at back then. Duct taped my non-detuned edges, and was doing spins, grabs and kick-flips/heel-flips I still have that board and it is fine.

It's super fun.

you have to remove some glue from the tape from the base and wax it before you use it the next time on snow, but that`s all. think every rail is damaging a board more than some trampaction. even some stupid skiers in the liftline are more dangerous to a snowboard than a soft tramp

I spent an hour at a tramp park in Utah (Snogression) only working on spins on the tramps. After 30 minutes I went from struggling with corking my 360s to being able to do really smooth controlled 720's (a guy was coaching me a bit). When I got back on the hill I was able to throw down some 360's I hadnt been able to do. So yeah it helps. Im too much of a wuss to try anything bigger then a 360 though :/

oh so one of the exercises I did (this is for slyder) do a FS 180 then when you land do an immediate BS 180 once you land do a FS 360, then BS 360, keep adding a 180 rotation once you complete a set. so 180, 180, 360, 360, 540, 540. If you mess up start back at the 180. It worked really well for me.

I highly recommend getting a trampoline to practice your tricks. What I did was take a skateboard deck and screw old bindings onto it and it works great to practice all sorts of tricks. I have a spring free which is a little bit pricier than the normal trampoline but believe me, you get ALOT more air than a normal tramp. The idea of the spring free is that there isn't any springs, it plastic tubes under tension.

Which one do you have? Recommend a size?
